What people in the industry are saying
I have worked with Athena through several of my own professional iterations, including now as CEO of the Integrated Healthcare Association. In every instance Athena has been practical, professional and has demonstrated an uncanny knack of being connected to the right people and the right issues at the right time. This isn't chance—it reflects her longstanding and positive relationships and her "can do" approach. She has been exactly what IHA has needed at this stage in our organizational development.

I have worked with Athena Chapman for years. Athena is an industry expert who can provide important regulatory, policy, and financing insights on the health care industry both in California and nationally. Her experience with publicly funded programs such as the California Medicaid program is extensive and valuable. She has the knowledge and background to think strategically about the impacts of public policy and to drive productive collaboration and discussion on solutions that meet the needs of the various participants in the health care delivery system (including payors, providers, and consumers). Her company, Chapman Consulting, combines her unique skills with others in the field to form a team focused on innovative, comprehensive, and realistic policy and operational solutions to support the health care industry.

Athena Chapman has a wealth of knowledge about all things managed care and much more. I have utilized her expertise on policy and regulatory issues facing hospitals as well as presenting to a group of hospital CFO’s and managed care directors about rate setting and capitation calculations. She has many other strengths including stakeholder engagement and knowledge of the state and legislative processes. She is a pleasure to work with and will boil down difficult issues into understandable and actionable items.

The CiminoCare team has a great appreciation for Athena and her team! Not only has Athena’s great command of the policy arena helped us successfully navigate through the complexities, but her whole team has been supportive in helping communicate our message by developing pertinent collateral pieces. Athena and her team have helped us bridge the knowledge gap, as managed care is a new area for us. Their help with the collateral communication have astutely reach our target audiences within the managed care world.

Athena Chapman was the go-to expert for health plans and health policy pros on ACA implementation. She could analyze policy issues and government regs, then explain their effects to stakeholders and lawmakers. And she never bored anyone!
